The only life Ramesh knew was playing in the streets and sleeping under a tarp on the side of a major street. His father was murdered in 2016 and his mother was a chronic alcoholic. He was forced to beg for food, and even then, his mom often took the little money he gathered to buy more alcohol.
Ramesh came into Project I Am care in 2017. His mom also now lives with us and has recovered from her drinking problem.
